Too cold to play, the minutes crept like hours yesterday. Perfect time to bedazzle a tee with a toddler! Cut triangles out of a new sponge, paint sponge side with fabric paint (I used Pebeo Setacolor Opaque Fabric Paint) and stamp away. Pretty simple and fun for little ones too!

Want to keep your little one warm and cozy? Come join us and learn to knit a snuggly blanket for your baby. In this course, you will learn the knit and purl stitches, how to cast on and bind off and how to block your blanket for a finished look. Your favorite pre-crawler is welcome and encouraged to join us during the lessons. It’s a playdate for them and a how-to for you!
- Three to four skiens of a soft, wool blend yarn of your choosing (preferably around 100 grams in weight, 45 yards in length. I like Blue Sky Alpacas which you can purchase here). For a color block blanket, pick three to four different coordinating colors of yarn.
- Straight or circular knitting needles in the size appropriate for your yarn and guage. For example, if using a 100 gram yarn use size 15 US needles. Recommend circular knitting needles with a 32″ or 36″ in length.
